I don't totally support the idea but it wouldn't surprise me if Holmgren thought this way.
I doubt it. I think the plan is to bring Laughton aboard for some fresh legs if he's available. Rookies always seem to have some jump when they make their debuts in the playoff. Pageau, Toffolli, Wilson, Krug, Kreider, etc. are all some rookies off the top of my head that brought some energy to their teams in the post season.
I think Laughton could be useful, and I'd love to see him in the lineup over Rinaldo in the playoffs.
